Canasia Acquires Option on more than 450,000 Contiguous Acres of
Potash Claims

Canasia Industries Corporation (the "Company") wishes to announce that,
subject to regulatory approval, it has signed an option agreement to
acquire a 100% interest, in the Eyehill Creek Potash Property, which
consists of 20 Metallic and Industrial Minerals Permit (MAIM)
Applications, located within east-central Alberta, along the
Saskatchewan-Alberta border. These permit applications, which the
Company anticipates will be granted shortly, encompass approximately
450,000 acres of lands prospective for potash.

The Eyehill Creek Potash Property is underlain at depth by the Prairie
Evaporite Formation, the uppermost unit of the Elk Point Group. The
Prairie Evaporite Formation occurs extensively across the plains region
of western Canada, where individual potash beds can be up to seven
meters thick.

The Potash-bearing beds of the Prairie Evaporite Formation are shown to
project into the Eyehill Creek Property by Hamilton (1971), while
Hamilton and Olson (1994) document a Potash Showing on the property.
Most of the recorded Potash Exploration in Alberta occurred between
1965 and 1968. The Company believes that there is potential for the
discovery of significant Potash occurences within the Eyehill Creek
Property. Currently, there is no NI43-101 report on this property, nor
are there proven, indicated or inferred resources. The Company plans
to initiate a compilation of all historic exploration data for the
area, and the completion of a NI43-101 report.

Potash is a general term covering several types of potassium salts, of
which the most important is potassium chloride, the mineral sylvite.
Potash is a nutrient essential for plant growth, and is a cornerstone
of modern agricultural fertilizers. Roughly 95 per cent of world potash
production goes into fertilizer, while the other five per cent is used
in commercial and industrial products - everything from soap to
television tubes. According to an article in the Financial Post
published Wednesday, February 20, 2008, "Driving potash prices will be
strong demand - particularly from countries outside of China, which is
currently negotiating contracts - in a time of historically low
inventory levels, the strategists say. North American producer
inventories are 37% below the five-year historical average, and about
50% lower than in 2006."

Graeme Sewell, a director of the Company stated, "This prospect holds a
tremendous opportunity for Canasia to branch out its mining operations
into potash, a commodity which is in high demand at this time. Once
final permits are received a work program will be initiated with the
hopes to ultimately put a mine into production. When you consider
that currently there are only a few publicly traded Potash companies,
the majority of these trading with market caps over 100 million
dollars, we feel that this new prospect has the possibility to create
significant shareholder value if it is shown to contain an economic
potash deposit."

Terms of the acquisition with the arms-length vendor are as follows:

1) Cash payment of $35,000 upon execution of the Option Agreement;

2) A further cash payment of $89,998 after receipt of the MAIM Permits;

3) On acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange and receipt of the
metallic and industrial minerals issuance of 500,000 common shares
of the Company;

4) One year from the date of the Agreement the issuance of 500,000
common shares of the Company;

5) Two years from the date of the Agreement the issuance of 500,000
common shares of the Company; and

6) The property is subject to a 2% NSR Royalty.

Jody Dahrouge P.Geol., a qualified person, has reviewed the information
pertinent to the Eyehill Potash Property contained herein.

The Company wishes to further announce that it will be attending the
PDAC March 2nd and 3rd. According to the PDAC's website, "The PDAC
International Convention, Trade Show and Investors Exchange is the most
important event in the world of exploration, bringing together over
18,000 attendees from all over the globe." Canasia's management extends
an invitation to all shareholders and prospective shareholders to meet
Canasia representatives at the show.
